    1. Plug phone into computer (make sure USB Debugging is enabled)
    2. Open a command prompt
    3. Issue the change directory command to change to your android-sdk-windows/tools directory
    4. Issue the following commands:

    adb remount

    5. You are now back "into" your phone. If you need shell access, issue the following:

    adb shell

    6. You may now remove apps, etc. If you are looking for what commands to use to remove the apps, there is a tutorial/faq on all of this (including what I already put here).

    The basic commands are as follows:

    adb remount
    adb shell
    cd /system/app
    ls (this will show you a list of apps currently installed in the /system/app directory)
    rm nameofapk.apk (this will remove the app (apk file) that you no longer want)

    You can also check out the /data/app directory to see if there are apps there you do not want:

    cd /data/app/
    rm nameofapk.apk

    Keep in mind, if you start removing things, you may remove something that is necessary for the system to function properly. Use caution and only remove what you know is safe. If you don't know, read up as there is a thread on what you can/cannot remove. Or...just ask :)
